My mother and I both did Ancestry as our Christmas gifts last year. Mine took about 8 weeks to come in. My mom got a notice in about that time frame that her sample could not deliver results, so she had to resubmit and wait another 8 weeks. Frustrating!

It was cool to see what part of my heritage comes from what side. I knew for the most part i would be at least half Polish and a quarter Norwegian. Turns out I'm 70% Eastern European and only 16% Scandinavian - however that I'm also 9% Irish! News to me, but that could absolutely be from Viking conquests. 16+9=25. On the nose.

My mother was exactly what she thought she would be - 98% Eastern European.

Neither of us have matched with any relatives closer than 4th cousins.
